Ever flicked through galleries of Coachella outfits and thought ‘gaaawd, I really wish I could be in California right now’? Well now you’ll be able to get a taste of the action thanks to a new festival coming to London next summer.

Created by AEG and Goldenvoice, the official organisers of Coachella, All Points East will take over Victoria Park for a whopping 10 days from 25 May to 3 June 2018, pushing the likes of Lovebox and Field Day out of business for a year.

According to reports, it will all open with a three-day music festival, with The xx and two yet unknown acts taking the headline slots. Three standalone concerts will then close proceedings, including The National supported by War On Drugs, Future Islands and Warpaint.

Between the big gigs, you’ll be able to enter the park for free, which will host an outdoor cinema, comedy sets and food events. If that doesn’t sound like a great way to start your summer, we don’t know what does!

Tickets go on sale on Friday 27 October from Ticketmaster.
